SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - September 29, 2016) - Halloween is one of the most neighborly holidays of the year, when little ghouls and goblins head out to trick-or-treat in neighborhoods across America.
For the second year in a row, Nextdoor, the private social network for neighborhoods, has analyzed data from neighborhoods that use the annual Treat Map feature to find the top ten best cities for trick-or-treating in the country.
America's top ten best cities for trick-or-treating in 2016 include:
- Downers Grove, IL
- Edmond, OK
- Midland, TX
- Wake Forest, NC
- Parker, CO
- Brentwood, TN
- Dublin, CA
- Madison, WI
- St. Louis Park, MN
- Silver Spring, MD
This October, neighbors can use Nextdoor's Treat Map starting on October 3rd to let each other know they will be passing out candy by marking their home on their neighborhood's Treat Map with a candy corn icon. Parents and trick-or-treaters alike can use the map to plan a safe, fun Halloween night - and plan the best route to go trick-or-treating through the neighborhood to ensure a full bag of candy by the end of the night! Neighbors can also mark a haunted house icon on the Treat Map, indicating that kids can stop by for a terrifying trip through a neighbor's haunted house.
"Joining in on all of the fun, spooky, and sweet Halloween traditions is one of the most neighborly things you can do all year," said Nirav Tolia, Co-Founder and CEO of Nextdoor. "We're excited to share this year's list of the top ten best cities for trick-or-treating. We encourage neighbors everywhere to join in on the Halloween spirit by adding their homes to their neighborhood's Treat Map."
